New Social Network Trailer Posted
Promo meets Facebook chat...

The new trailer for David Fincher’s latest, The Social Network, has been shoved online by Sony and you can watch it below.

Following on from the tradition set by the first promo, this latest teaser features zero footage from the film, but intriguingly sets dialogue to Facebook chat/status updates featuring pictures of the cast and the names of the people they play.

It’s a stylish change from the usual rote trailer, even if it does make us start to worry that no one thought to put film in the camera when they were making the movie itself and all we have is the recorded dialogue.

But we’re eager to see what this thing looks like, and with Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield and more all working from an Aaron Sorkin script, even the dialogue by itself crackles with life.

Following the drama behind the controversial creation of Facebook, the film charts the work of Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow programmers at Harvard in 2003.

The movie is apparently set to open the 48th Annual New York Film Festival this September, but you don’t care about that, you just want to get straight to the trailer. Enjoy!


The Social Network sends a friend request to our cinemas on October 15.

As much as I love Aaron Sorkin as a writer, god these trailers are just appalling. Really aren't selling the film at all. More

just finished reading the script that's been lying around on the good ole internet, gotta say that it's sounding/reads pretty damn good. Really funny throughout, great pace, should be the Wall Street for the new millennium, or the new generation x?! whichever works. let me know if you'd like the link, not sure if i can post it on these boards!?

I like the look of this, a cracking cast and a potentially interesting premise... But that trailer was nigh on unwatchable. Very annoying More

Andrew Garfield's american accent
I dont think we have to worry about garfield not being able to do an american accent for spiderman. His accent in this sounded preety good to me. More

great dialogue, can't wait
If Aaron Sorkin wasn't the writer behind this movie I almost definitely wouldn't be planning on seeing it. I just love the movies/tv shows he's involved with; they're all brilliant! More
